Pensacola Lighthouse

We visited the historic and haunted Pensacola Lighthouse after we left the museum.

The lighthouse is said to be be haunted by Michaela Ingraham, the light keepers wife.  She and Jeremiah moved to the lighthouse in 1826.  He died in 1840 and it is possible he was murdered by Michaela but that was never proven and she took over his job.  She died in 1855 and is said to be a hostile ghost who wants to be left alone.

There are 177 steps to the top and Larry is the only one of the four of us who took on the challenge.

We didn't stay long at Fort Barrancus because it was closed but did stay long enough to get a geocache related to these mortars and guns and take a silly photo.
